GERMANY, Frankfurt (Oder): Programme and 2nd invitation to Viadrinicum 2018: Transsectoral PeaceLab. Hybrid Solutions to Hybrid Conflicts? Academia, Civil Society and the Arts.

Viadrinicum is an annual summer school devoted to the countries of the Eastern Partnership region with a special focus on Ukraine. This year it will take place in the form of Transsectoral PeaceLab, aiming to tackle the issues of peace and (military) con­flicts from multiple theoretical and methodological perspectives. With a strong emphasis on participatory formats the school will allow its participants to deepen their knowledge about con­flict prevention, con­flict transformation and peace mediation and enhance their practical and methodological skills in the framework of several project-oriented workshops. The school seminars will be devoted to theoretical and empirical analysis of the role of memory and identity discourse and aspects of gender in the con­flict areas of the Eastern Partnership region.

Detailed programme was recently released.
